  1. HA! Walmart should use that clip as their next ad campaign. "Break-out your white tie and tails, we're goin' to Walmart." "Don't need the glitz and glamor, no caviar by the Nile, I'll be just fine, with me and mine, while we sashay down the aisle." "Thank you Mayor Bloomberg for all your renovation, but it'll be awhile till we kick the style of our beloved destination." 

  2. That's the funniest thing I've seen in quite some time.  I've always thought of WalMart as a pretty high-end, upper-class kind of place, and Ms. Jackson's comments just confirm what I already knew to be true.

    And, actually, my small Virginia town had an Oktoberfest festival over the weekend, and while I was walking down the street, looking at all of the precious rural folks, I found myself thinking about them as potential audience – the first time I've done that in a crowded place.  It was an interesting phenomenon as I tried to imagine what would speak to them – what sort of stories they would receive.  

    Good thing to do in Dollar Palaces or WalMart, too.  Or in a Starbucks in Santa Monica, for that matter.

  3. But Hollywood has beat us to the punch! I am a foreign missionary, living and working in the former Soviet Central Asia. I've been there for eight years (am home now on furlough) and the one thing that connects my homeland with my adopted homeland is Hollywood. Well, not the only thing, but the most obvious thing.

    Video stores are on every corner! If you go into a house, the odds are that the homeowner has a DVD collection (oftentimes badly translated into Russian, but still…) and not usually with movies from Hong Kong or Bollywood, but Hollywood. If you are talking to a young person there, you can have a long conversation about the latest movies, because they are being released simultaneously worldwide.

    There is very little interest in home-grown movies. The film industry in my host country is pretty impressive for a former USSR country, but still – the only time the vast majority of nationals have paid much attention to their product was when Hollywood came and co-produced a big budget film with them, using western actors to play nationals.

    This underlines the importance of getting Christians working in Hollywood, so that the product that is being turned out will contain more TRUTH and less POISON – because it is the world that is at stake. It's great if we can get more GOSPEL out, but at this stage of the game, I think it would be fantastic if we were able to stem the flow of POISON going around the world.
